So, after getting my eyes examined at the optometrist's (no change in prescription!), and having them dilated, I had to basically veg out, since I couldn't see. Ack. That lasted a few hours, and then I hit the books:

I finished reading six Osprey books:

First was Osprey New Vanguard #161: Ships of the American Revolutionary Navy which was pretty good.

Second was Osprey Men-at-Arms #399: Medieval Scandinavian Armies (2): 1300 - 1500 which deals with a period that I find useful.

Then, Osprey Men-at-Arms #409: The Hussite Wars 1419 - 36, which dealt with history of which I knew nothing.

Next, I've got a hankering to peruse what they have on the Middle East wars, next of which was Osprey Men-at-Arms #128: Arab Armies of the Middle East Wars 1948 - 73, which gave some background which explains why the Arab armed forces acted as they did.

Then Osprey New Vanguard #93: Modern Israeli Tanks and Infantry Carriers 1985 - 2004, which I found fascinating, especially when they used their stockpiles of captured Russian-made equipment to make their APCs.

Lastly, I completed reading Osprey Elite #18: Israeli Elite Units since 1948, which details some history about the Palmach that I'd never known. Nice.
